Preventing HIV Is a Matter of Privilege

A new survey from Kaiser Family Foundation has shown an uncomfortable reality in HIV prevention: black Americans are more likely to know about PrEP (a daily pill used to prevent HIV infection), but less likely to believe that it’s effective or that they can access it. These findings reiterate the healthcare disparities faced by people of color in our country, and underscore the way in which disenfranchised groups are left behind in terms of care. Other studies have shown that black people are disproportionately affected by HIV, and that this disparity is growing over time. This echoes a study done by Gilead, the manufacturer of PrEP/Truvada, which found its users were mostly white. Lindsey D
